FABULEUX article interactif du @pewresearch sur la composition ethnique de l'électorat US en âge de voter.
Déclin uniforme de la part des Blancs non hispaniques (76% en 2000, 67% en 2018). La part des Hispaniques a quasiment doublé de 2000 à 2018. MAIS...

2)... l'électorat US en âge de voter n'est pas celui qui accomplit les formalités d'inscription et encore moins celui qui participe à l'élection. Et le taux de participation des Blancs, socle électoral de #Trump, est bien supérieur à celui de toutes les minorités... Image
3) Pour les démocrates, il faut faire remonter le taux de participation des Africains Américains au niveau record de 2008-2012 avec Obama sur le ticket et travailler 1 mobilisation plus forte de cet incroyable réservoir hispanique en croissance, surtout dans les Etats clefs...

The 'Texas Paper' is getting sensationalist headlines. Remember:
- D614G is same mutation we've known about since spring & been in media all summer
- It happened in ~Jan & most of Europe & much of US had it
- Great to confirm previous work, but not 'breaking'

#SARSCoV2 #COVID19
Worth noting that the authors of this study sat on 5,000 sequences *all summer* meaning they couldn't be used by other scientists to explore any findings in these sequences. Or to better understand Texas's epidemic during its biggest spike.
The author laments the low sequencing rates of #SARSCoV2:

“I think we need to be doing this pretty aggressively in multiple locations on a real-time basis,” Musser said. “I think it’s shameful that we’re not doing that.”

/It's shameful to sit on sequences that could be public./

During its analysis, @PILFoundation also found that nearly 40,000 likely duplicate registrants "appear to have cast second votes in 2018 from the same address."

Several new southern state polls from Tyson Group (some are a bit old though):

Alabama:
Trump 48% (+4)
Biden 44%

Florida:
Trump 44%
Biden 46% (+2)

Louisiana:
Trump 48% (+6)
Biden 42%

Mississippi:
Trump 50% (+10)
Biden 40%

Texas:
Trump 44%
Biden 48% (+4)
The #Alabama number is the most surprising to me. It marks nearly a 24% swing toward the Democrats from the 2016 results:

electoralpolls.com/alabama

Still, no other polls have shown this close a race there so we'll see if anything else comes close.
The #Louisiana number is also very surprising. Trump won it by 20 points last time. There have been 3 polls there this year:

Trump +6
Trump +16.4
Trump +7

electoralpolls.com/louisiana

Trump's still the heavy favorite to win (93% chance), but he's only up 8% in the average.

If I'm reading the @BLS_gov report correctly from for the month of June 2020:
1. Gov Employees averaged $52.36 / hour in total comp
2. Civilian Workers $38.20 / hour
3. Private Industry $35.96 / hour
So public "servants" are making 37-46% more than private sector? aka our tax $ Image
@SpeakerPelosi @senatemajldr @realDonaldTrump @JoeBiden
On a serious note, why are Americans suffering more than Public "Servants", who based on the June 2020 report are making 35-46% more than the private sector. Are y'all going to fix this issue? bls.gov/news.release/e…
@tedcruz @JohnCornyn y'all are my Senators in the great state of #Texas. [See above] Why is this allowed to be the case that government employees, who are paid with our money (taxes), are making more per hour than working #Americans?

Nearly 350,000 #DeadRegistrants remain on voter rolls across 41 states, according to an audit conducted by the @PILFoundation.

The number is a major improvement over the last time an assessment of similar scope was performed in 2012, when a Pew Research report turned up 2 million deceased voters on the rolls.

Evicting people in the midst of a pandemic is not the answer. Homes now act as both offices and schools. Losing a home puts a child out of school and places an undue burden on those already struggling to make ends meet. houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-t…
In these unprecedented times empathy and common decency are key to protecting all Americans. Such despicable actions from a public servant simply serve to show the lack of compassion exhibited for everyday Texans.

1. Is #Austin's BIOMASS purchase the largest in #Texas?

It’s a billion-dollar boondoggle.

Former Goldman Sachs partner Mark Green refers to it as the “#Austin biomass disaster.” No matter what you call it, it spelled trouble for Austin taxpayers.
texasbusinesscoalition.com/stories/527596…
2. “Under the repayment terms of the bond, Austin is on the hook to pay $43,000,000 a year until the end of 2032 and gets nothing in return — no energy, no other service from Southern Co and is stuck with a white elephant non-operating plant in Nacogdoches."
3. Somehow City of Austin got the appraisals of the property lowered to less than $500k for 2020.

“Nacogdoches may very well sue Austin Energy and Austin — they should,” he said.

Rumbo a las elecciones de EEUU en 2020, para mí no hay estado más fascinante que Texas.

Ningún demócrata ha ganado una presidencial ahí desde que Jimmy Carter derrotó a Gerald Ford en 1976: hace 44 años. ¿Por qué se habla entonces tanto del estado en 2020?

Primero: contexto.
#Texas es el estado más grande de EEUU después de Alaska. Es más grande que Francia y equivale a un tercio (sí, dije un tercio) de México.

• No SIEMPRE fue republicano. El ascenso del “Great Old Party” (GOP) vino tras los 60s: Derechos Civiles y Vietnam. Y protestas.
Primero hay que entender que antes de cualquier cosa (republicano o demócrata), Texas es texano. TX ha tenido seis banderas: la española, la mexicana, la francesa, la confederada, la de EEUU y la de la República de Texas.

Por eso Six Flags se llama así. Fue fundado en Texas.

If you don’t want to wear a mask on a flight, don’t fly. I’m flying back to #Houston #Texas from #Chicago for work and all passengers had to sign this contract. The airline requires face coverings be worn over both mouth AND nose. Let’s see how many comply. #MaskUp #CovidIsReal
2/ In #Wisconsin I’ve noticed folks not wearing masks in Subway with their kids, at hotels and restaurants where elderly people crowd around groups of small tables outside. Eating outside doesn’t protect you - ask @BillPlaschke latimes.com/sports/story/2…
3/ I’ve seen people this trip with masks under their noses. I’ve heard complaints that masks are uncomfortable; that they have trouble breathing. If that’s true, see a doctor. If it’s not, you need to see a ventilator. I saw a man placed on one. The next day, he died. #COVID19

The Birth of a Political Party: A largely Black Party - (Texas)

"In July 1867 twenty whites and 150 blacks attended a Republican convention in Houston, where they endorsed free common schools and free homesteads from public lands for blacks and whites."

Thus began a decades-long tradition of black Republicanism in the state. Despite widespread violence and intimidation by the Ku Klux Klan and Democrats, ...

1/5 Thread: Many thanks Jim @Acosta for hosting me today @CNNSitRoom where I explained my concerned about EUAs for #COVID19 #vaccines.

Here's why:
2/5 Thread:

1) We don't do EUAs for #vaccines reaching large segments of the US population...

2) ) because it's an incomplete and substandard review
3/5 Thread:

3) Rightfully, American people don't trust EUAs after FDA implemented and then revoked an EUA this year for hydroxychloroquine, and then the EUA for plasma Rx was poorly explained
